‘Powerless’: ‘Sinking Day’ Review


Let’s all celebrate “Sinking Day” with the Wayne Securities team in the third episode of NBC’s DC Comics comedy Powerless.

When Van Wayne (Alan Tudyk) loses the company’s biggest clients (Ace Chemicals), his father, Vanderveer Wayne Sr. (Corbin Bernsen), makes an angry landing in Charm City to inform his son that he has lost his respect. Soon, Emily (Vanessa Hudgens) is forced to step up and try to help sign the people of Atlantis on as new clients in hopes of helping Van win his father’s approval.

Meanwhile, Teddy (Danny Pudi), Ron (Ron Funches) and Jackie (Christina Kirk) suspect their new co-worker Alex (Matthew Atkinson) of being a new superhero named The Olympian.

There’s a lot to talk about in this week’s episode of Powerless, so hit the next button below to follow along as we break down the highlights and critical moments of “Sinking Day.”
